The Objectives

This course is all about showing what rock climbing is about and showing off the amazing climbing to be found here in North Wales.  Over the 5 days we’ll be able to try bouldering, sport and trad as well as climb on different rock types to really give a good overview of the sport. 

We’ll work at developing your climbing on rock, looking at movement skills and technique to make you a better climber.  We’ll also look at belaying, rope management, equipment and abseiling to start giving you skills towards independence.

What to Expect

The itinerary will depend on the teams needs and the weather. We’ll tailor the course to you using our experience from years of climbing here to choose the best venues each day. North Wales has loads of climbing from sport climbing on the slate or limestone to classic mountain crags as well as the sunny sea cliffs on the West coast of Anglesey. There is also loads of bouldering with the best beginner’s bouldering venue only 5 minutes down the road.
